IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: ELON MUSK - ENTREPRENEUR

Rate this Entry

MuskSouth African native Elon Musk is Inc. Magazine's Entrepreneur of the Year. Musk came to the US as a university student and later co-founded PayPal, a company sold to eBay in 2002 for $1.5 billion. Now worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Musk is not resting on his laurels. He's the CEO and head rocket designer at SpaceX, an aerospace company with plans to begin launching astronauts to rendezvous with the International Space Station as early as 2011. It's more practical purpose is to launch satellites, something the company promises it can do for 25% of the cost of the current going rate.



He is the founder of electric car maker Tesla Motors, a company that Inc. calls "a rare bright spot in the otherwise troubled American auto industry." The company has already sold 600 vehicles at nearly $100,000 each. The company's snazzy Roadster can go from zero to sixty in just four seconds.



Musk is also the founder of solar panel system designer and installer SolarCity, another industry that is taking off as oil prices soar.



Oh, and in his personal life, Musk the father of triplets with five children under the age of 4.

    This writeup is not quite accurate.

    Actually, the Tesla founders were Marc Tarpenning and Martin Eberhard. Mr. Musk was the main initial investor and is still the Chairman.

    If you would take half a minute for checking out your facts, you'd know that Musk is only the moneyman.

    Tesla Motors was founded by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpening.

    Martin was booted out of Tesla Motors toward the end of 2007 and booting continues to this day. They fired the lead engineer who developed the eMotor on power electronisc, they fired the performance optimizator etc. Tesla Motors is rotting.

    I wouldn't be suprised if the roadster does not materialize at all. Thanks to Elon Musk.
